Singled Out: Random Touch
Because we so prolific, and because our releases often trail by a couple years or so the creation of a track, we often have very little memory of the jam itself. However, Home for Twilight's length, breadth and maturity made for easy recollection. The original recording notes identify the sixth track of June 16, 2007 as "Great." The piece has a quiet confidence and feels ripe with abundance and expansiveness. I remember feeling that it represented a mature work by Random Touch. Like many longer pieces, it begins slow and diffuse, resembling a deep-space nebulae.
As it progresses things begin falling into place, as if it is moving towards the creation of a bonafide solar system that moves with clockwork precision and a sense of completion. In the American Indian tradition of the four directions, West represents harvest, dreams, intuition and twilight. This piece seemed to be of the West, seemingly containing all four aspects. For me, twilight itself encompasses harvest, dreams and intuition, and so to offer the track a title centered around twilight, and with two meanings no less, seemed very apt.
